British Lion (Steve Harris) – Friday 26th November 2021
Iron Maiden’s bass player, founder member and leader, Steve Harris takes temporary leave from his Maiden activities to concentrate on his solo/side project British Lion.
Steve is joined by singer Richard ‘Richie’ Taylor, guitarists David Hawkins and Grahame Leslie, plus drummer Simon Dawson. For more than eight years they’ve built things up from scratch, sometimes playing gigs so intimate they required Maiden’s legendary bassist to walk through crowds to access the stage. And he f*****g loves it!
“I’m really happy,” beams Steve. “We’ve got proper fans that come to see us for us, and not because of the day job. You get that as well, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m just saying it’s finding its own fanbase now and they’re champing at the bit because it had been so long waiting for this album.”
